When it was built in 1950 for the World Cup, Rio de Janeiro's Maracanã stadium was then the largest in the world, holding an unprecedented 200,000 spectators for the tournament's Brazil/Uruguay final. Today, Maracanã holds far less people, thanks in part to one horrific incident in 1992. On July 19 of that year, an upper stand in the arena collapsed, injuring 50 fans and killing three. Officials vowed to reduce Maracanã's capacity to prevent such calamities, and today the stadium holds 82,238 - still the largest sports complex in South America. Maracanã is currently closed for renovations, though will soon open to host, among other events, the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics.
